Reverie (mindfulness post for 2/10/17)

Posted on by Matthew Kramer-LaPadula

Sometimes I sit and remember a moment that has passed. Even if the memory of that moment is pleasing, the feeling of remembering does not surmount the joy of the moment itself. This is part of the reason that being present is so important. When we live our life through memory, we are not fully in tune with what is going and so we fail to experience the entire joy offered by what is happening right now. Leave the memories for your nighttime dreams, travels to the other side. While you are awake, come back to now.
